in which I write about the issue of installing IBM Integration Designer (IID) from a shared drive on a Windows server.

Most recently, I saw this whilst trying to install IID from a VMware Shared Folder, using VMware Fusion on my Mac, to a Windows 2008 Server R2 VM. I had previously unpacked the installation media into a directory on my Mac, and was hoping to install INTO the VM without needing to copy the source files INTO the VM.

Alas, that did not work, as per my previous post.

which says, in part: -

Which is nice :-)
